Days of the Week
Time flies. Isshukan (means one
week) is over before you know it.
And the Shumatsu (means weekend) is too short!
Both American and Japanese weeks
have seven days.
In America, week starts on sunday, but a Japanese week starts on Monday.
Here is teh list of th days of
the week in Japanese language.
||Getsu yo bi
||Ka yo bi
||Sui yo bi
||Moku yo bi
||Kin yo bi
||Do yo bi
||Nichi yo bi
As you can see, we use exactly
the same 2 Japanese kanji symbols and only change
the first character, as well as the pronunciation
of "Yo bi" part is the same.
So, we write week days as a whole
like the following.
In Japanese, we say "Ge
Ka Sui moku kin Do Nichi"
